    Pros

    Everything! This place really takes care of its employees. Great benefits, laid-back environment, a place where you don't mind putting in 14 hours a day if needed.

    Cons

    The company is becoming larger and larger. Perhaps the focus on employee development isn't there as much as it used to be.

    Pros

    A great group of people that are very fun to work with. Such a positive, innovative energy! Truly a family that has each others best interests in heart. An environment where people work to help each other rather than compete against each other

    Cons

    Communication can be difficult and because it is a very fast growing company, more responsibilities are handed out than some individuals may be familiar with

    POOR MANAGEMENT

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Several learning opportunities available for entry level manufacturing employees due to continuous production mistakes

    Cons

    Very poor management, no accountability, no root cause analysis on issues, low employee morale, and EXTREMELY low grade pay. This is not a company that you can retire from unless you are amongst the idiots placed in managerial positions.

    A poor place to work long-term due to no career advancement and low pay with outrageously high expectations.

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    It is a nice place to start out. You will meet many great people, learn how things work, and observe a lot about the culture. You will gain valuable experience on many projects and interact with a diverse surrounding. The benefits are decent and depending on the immediate people around you, it can be a very fun atmosphere. If you join a department with a great Director or VP, you will love it.

    Cons

    With the workload you are given, you will likely put in much overtime without recognition or appreciation. Turnover overall is pretty high. The medical insurance is high. Some department heads play favorites and target those they don't like by setting them up to fail. Sometimes you will witness the worst disrespect you can imagine in a workplace, and the higher paid individual will get away with it. If you are not a favorite, your suggestions for anything will not matter, even if it could help the company. The values are a joke only because they are not followed and preached by some who are hypocrites.

    Pros

    you know what to expect every day. shifts are also consistent. it's not like most companies where your schedules always change

    Cons

    this company does not hire a lot of new people. they use staffing agencieswhich is cheaper for them and they have no responsibility for medical benefits. managers are very disgruntled when dealing with employees. They almost feel godlike.
